"oh, my god, i've got to appear --" >> he had a campaign to take it to the ameri
complete his full campaign before he did. and john boehner says he would never support marriage equality. and yet, on another front,septor bob corker from tennessee says it is time for republicans to make sense and start reporting new revenue, not higher taxes but closing those tax loopholes to raise new revenue, but john boehner once again says don't talk to me about raising taxes. all nothing funner than watching republicans eat each other alive. >> the troops love me.

. gun safety is fast becoming a low priority in washington. and another is immigration. john boehner praised the bipartisan house group working on immigration legislation. >> there are a lot of issues in here that have to be dealt with and i think what this bipartisan group came up with is frankly a pretty responsible solution. >> michael: sounds like progress but of course this being washington self promotion is as much a priority as actual legislation. in these days no one is playing the game better than rand paul whose top priority seems to be positioning himself for 2016. in a speech in the hispanic chamber of commerce paul put him squarely in the middle of the debate. >> immigration will not occur until conservative republicans like myself become part of the solution. that's why i'm here today to begin that conversation and to be part of the solution. i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> michael: okay, sounds like he wan
influence the vote. >> you interviewed speaker of the house john boehner for the show. is the president's charm offensive is working? >> i didn't get the sense from john boehner that it's working. the so-called charm offensive, he doesn't seem particularly charmed. we'll ask our roundtable about that. very curious to see what they think. >> what if anything can heal this relationship? martha, thank you. great to see you. join martha later this morning on "this week." her special guest will be house speaker john boehner. >>> an update on a story we told you, girl scouts with hoaxed into believing they made a massive girl scouts cookie sale. they were stuck with all of those treats. abc's tanya rivero is here to tell us how it went. >> reporter: what could motivate to play such a cruel trick on girl scouts? the money they were counting on for summer camp and to benefit a homeless shelter, suddenly vanishes. >> it's one of the tastiest american traditions. >> the cookies are here. >> reporter: these port lant, oregon, girl scouts thought they made the sweetest sale ever, selling 6,000 box
control with house republicans in a meeting that john boehner described as a, quote, frank and candid exchange of ideas. but today's meeting with the senate republicans is arguably the most important day of outreach for the president. kelly o'donnell has the latest on that. >> reporter: great to see you. that meeting is still going on. you point out, it is perhaps the most important and it might be the place where the president has the best chance to make up some ground. we know that he will also meet with house democrats and that's more of a family meeting. a much greater in numbers meeting. so with senate republicans, you've got the most intimate group. 40 some members will be there today. and i'm not getting any reports out of the room just yet. one of the differences here on the hill is that we have sort of interior road blocks that we don't have day to day because the president is not only here but moving from one side of the capital to another. what's at stake here? certainly the president has been saying, he is trying to have a more positive relationship, trying to get rid of s
's house speaker john boehner. >> i believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. it's what i grew up with, it's what i believe. it's what my church teaches me. and i can't imagine that position would ever change. >> you know the church taught segregation before integration. churches do change. >> hillary clinton showed her support in this video. >> like so many others, my personal views have been shaped over time by people i have known and loved, by my experience representing our nation on the world's stage. my devotion to human rights, and the guiding principles of my faith. >> finally, public support for gay marriage is at an all-time high. 58% support marriage equality. only 36% opposed. let's bring in the national spo spokes person. it's a human rights issue as well. so it's not just personal. it's principle. so the accolades for senatorportman's announcement need to be put that a context, don't they? >> they do, but senator portman and mrs. clinton are two examples of people who are examples of what we've always nope at glad, which is when people know us, when they kno
mean, i had john boehner on my radio show and paul ryan on the show last night. what are your thoughts? what are they doing right and wrong? >> doing something, proposing budgets all well and good. they had a continuing resolution last week, that they could have used to try and cut some of obamacare administrative expenses, put some language in it in order to curtail obamacare. obamacare is the big killer in this society and not just of health care, but of liberty and the constitution, and what do they do? they vote for it. not only do they vote for it, they don't allow conservatives in the house to put an amendment on it. obama's not taking boehner seriously, he's kicking him around like a soccer ball. that's the problem, the republicans have got to show they mean something, if they don't, this is going to continue and as far as obama goes, mr. president, you said you would not raise taxes on the middle class. you increase those payroll taxes. why do you keep lying to the american people? you said you wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class. we've got all kinds of taxes on medical de

topics, let's start with the op ed john boehner wrote in "washington post," where he addresses obama's leadership in trying to reach a budget deal. what do you make of that piece? >> it's interesting, mr. obama, the president went to house republicans yesterday and the best that can be said is there was no food thrown. but after the outreach, which is the word of the week in washington, after the president's outreach, the next morning in "the washington post," we see an op ed from house speaker john boehner saying that the president has to go beyond the same proposals and democratic dogma. that does not sound like conciliatory language to me. >> let's go back to scott prouty. he's the bartender who recorded mitt romney's 47% remarks. he's speaking out now for the first time. how did he bring mitt romney down? how significant was that video to mitt romney's campaign? and do you think it will affect the way that politicians conduct themselves at fund-raisers in the future? >> well, i think that the whole idea that you can count on being taped just about anything you do is going to affe
thing in the morning on "this week." among her guests, house speaker john boehner, that's tomorrow morning. we'll all be watching right here. >>> in the meantime, there is fallout on a change from a devicive issue from a republican in washington. senator rob portman says he will support gay marriage after his son told him he's gay. some of the constituents are reacting tonight. here's abc rooe that new york nan. >> my son came to jane, my wife, and i, and told us that he was gay. >> that was the moment republican senator rob portman began changing his opposition to same-sex marriage. >> he's going to make a lot of people in the conservative wing of the republican party quite upset. >> reporter: but for portman, it was not about politics. >> to have the joy and the stability of marriage that i've had for over 26 years. i want all three of my kids to have that, including our son who is gay. >> reporter: that son, 21-year-old will portman tweeting, especially proud of my dad today. but there was a backlash from some of the conservative constituents. >> you're a republican and all of a
degioia of georgetown university, the oldest jesuit college. house speaker john boehner is sending his own delegation. because of the sequester they'll be flying commercial. we'll be right back. >>> of course i left the race disappointed that i didn't win, but i also left honored and humbled to have represented the values we believe in and to speak for so many good and decent people. we've lost races before in the past, but those setbacks prepared us for larger victories. it's up to us to make sure that we learn from our mistakes and my mistakes and that we take advantage of that learning to make sure that we take back the nation, take back the white house, get the senate and put in place conservative principles. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was, of course, mitt romney, this afternoon addressing the crowd at cpac. he received i believe, a warm response, watching on tv, from the conservative activists out there. was it a last good-bye from a party that has moved on already? in his remarks romney offered little of new advice, beyond a general warning not to be pessimistic about conser
, that doesn't make any sense. right now house speaker john boehner basically saying that president obama's bluffing on a budget that whatever he means doesn't make sense, waiting to see what senate democrats and house republicans hammer out. obama has spent the last week wining and dining folks in congress but i'm not so sure this is going to lead to a grand bargain. why hasn't the president put his deal on the table? that's my question. with me is "new york times" steve israel. you're a great politician. i want to you slice through the contradiction of what the house speaker said. i understand why that would be a strategy, holding back, but then he says he's already got his budget written. what does that mean? that makes no sense. >> people listen to that and they are sick and tired of listening to the speaker blaming the president for not producing a budget. they just want us to get it done. they want us to get it done. republicans say they want entitlement reform, so-called entitlement reform. the president put on the table and democrats supported $716 billion in savings, innovations,
and audie cornish. welcome to all of you. i want to start with you, george will. you heard what john boehner said, taking a very hard line on any new revenues, even if entitlement reform is offered. how do they break this stalemate, especially after the so-called "charm offensive? >> first, any charm offensive, labeled as a charm offense ive tleesh loses some of its charm. this week, while the charm offensive was going on, two budgets were produced. in which, patrick murray, the chairman, who produced this, said medicare, medicaid, obama care and social security, the drivers of our fiscal crisis, no to a dime will be touched. ryan said that it's so-called austerity, federal spending will grow, 3.4% over the next decade. his radical idea is that, in 2024, senior citizens will shop for health care, imagine that? you have two budgets that don't have the slightest chance of passing. ryan's budget hasn't a prayer of a chance of passing the senate. because it depends on the repeal of obama care. so, what we need is some more elections. >> carly, it's dueling budgets. no chance? >> i don't think ei
, but will speaker john boehner come around? extremely unlikely, we'll examine the gop's divide on unions, next on "now." i'm phyllis, and i have diabetic nerve pain. when i first felt the diabetic nerve pain, of course, i had no idea what it was. i felt like my feet were going to sleep. it progressed from there to burning like i was walking on hot coals to like a thousand bees that were just stinging my feet. i have a great relationship with my doctor. he found lyrica for me.

speaker john boehner reacts in our exclusive interview. >>> also in national the cdc now says one in every 50 children has autism. one in 50. there are real questions being raised at how the cdc arrived at these numbers. >>> and the sports lead. how long has it been since the miami heat lost a game? well, back then most of us had not even heard of the harlem shake. good time. >>> we begin with the world lead. and finally, all sides of the middle east peace conflict are seeing eye to eye on something. none of them expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with legendary limited affection from one another. >> i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their warmth and hospitality. it was wonderful to see them. they are -- i did inform the prime minister that they are very good looking young men who clearly got their looks from their m
." the great divide continues between republicans and democrats, although house speaker john boehner is calling president obama's visit to capitol hill a good start to solving the nation's financial troubles. congressman boehner called the discussions frank and productive, as the president met with gop lawmakers behind closed doors yesterday. white house officials say mr. obama stressed the need to build trust between the two parties. the president also still believes there's an opportunity to reach a grand bargain on tax increases and spending cuts. meanwhile, europe is also facing budget friction. this week, members of the european parliament voted against a seven-year budget submitted last month by eu governments. the parliament is asking for more spending on economic growth and more flexibility to move money within the budget. now european government officials and parliament must head back to the drawing board. officials want to finalize the budget by summer. jp morgan chase ceo jamie dimon is not expected to testify on capitol hill this week about the so-called "london whale" tr
" from the republican lawmakers. republican and house speaker john boehner says the meeting involved a candid exchange of ideas, but differences remain over the budget, the federal debt and other issues. in sacremento, democrats have regained their two- thirds majority in the state senate with a special election victory in a san diego-based district. democrat ben hueso will switch from the assembly to the senate after receiving 52 percent of the vote in the 40th senate district race. >> jacqueline: the changes. we will continue that a slight warming trend. the fog tracker. basically it will be impacting the entire bay area. giving yourself some extra time. by 11, it is peeling back. still in the '70s and the south bay. a five, 10 degrees cooler. 70's for the inland valley. 60s for san leandro. cooler along the coast. 50s and 60s. noticeably cooler tomorrow. if slightly cooler saturday, sunday, monday. this will continue. and the rainfall is continuing. >> catherine: a new study finds that breast cancer patients treated with radiation are more likely to develop heart problems years la
four of them. they also think he blew up his own house. >> house speaker john boehner says he has too much to do in washington to travel to rome for the pope's installation ceremony. the white house had invited him to be part of the u-s delegation led by vice president joe biden. boehner says he appreciates the offer - but has lots of duties lined up -- including hosting the irish prime minister. boehner is the highest ranking catholic in congress. >> jacqueline: temperatures for cooler today with 70's and portions of the north bay. closer to the coast it was cooler. as we look ahead we will see some areas of fog toward slightly cooler that trend will continue for the weekend. temperatures are still mild for this time of year. 60s. those clouds are pressing to the south with cooler temperatures for tomorrow morning. we are still going to see some fog. perhaps more than with the fog tracker is showing. by 6:00 a.m., just the san mateo coast but i think that portions of the bay shore will also be impacted. by 8:00 a.m., still fog but it should clear by 11:00 a.m. temperatures? a few deg
having dinner with republican senators a week or so ago. like republicans john boehner says unless he gets serious about cutting spending they will not have a deal. >> president obama reached out yesterday and visited with the house republican conference and i think we had an honest discussion. but this is going to take more than dinner dates and phone calls. it's going to take the president and senate democrats rolling up their sleeves, making tough choices, about how we solve our nation's problems. >> reporter: i can tell you what is underlining awful this is when you talk to the president's top aides in private they say they are concerned about the president's time in office already getting close to lame duck stat it was and they are worried that the budget mess can over shadow the rest of his legacy, immigration reform, gun control, et cetera, that's why they are desperately trying to get a grand bargain, get a big budget deal so they can move onto other items. jenna: he just got reelected, necessity are already worried about that. >> reporter: most anal lis, even on the democrati

right now, bill, but reality while people are hoping for it including house speaker john boehner he is not very optimistic at all that democrats and republicans can achieve a grand bargain on the nation's budget deal. having said that, you will recall that the president did launch a major charm offensive, reaching out to republicans and democrats to find some common ground, in getting america's fiscal house in order. but some republicans remain skeptical about the president's sincerity. congressman paul ryan, who we just heard from, expressed doubts that the president's recent comment that the america is not in an immediate debt crisis. ryan contends america is teetering on the edge of a crisis and it will have serious repercussions. >> you know who gets first hurt in the debt crisis, the poor and elderly. that is what we're trying to prevent from happening. pro-growth economic policies to get people working to bring in more revenue and get the entitlement system under control so it doesn't go bankrupt so people can seriously plan for the promises government made for them in reirrel

house speaker john boehner will be the ranking u.s. official on american soil. president obama will be in the air en route to israel. vice president biden will be en route back from rome. while this confluence is a first for the obama administration, the white house today reminded reporters the president is the president wherever he goes. >>> it was a glittering night at the white house. 1985, princess diana and john travolta on the dance floor. her midnight blue gown was an instant sensation. it has sold at auction for $362,000 and change to an anonymous bidder who wanted to surprise his wife. >>> a big problem for lululemon, the makers of high end popular yoga clothes. they are recalling 17% of the women's yoga pants sold in their stores because they are see-through. they were made too sheer. they show too much. the vancouver-based company will take a financial hit and there may be shortages until their stock can get back up on its feet. >>> when we come back here tonight, a story of progress. schools thinking outside the box and outside the gym to help kids get some exercise
but something else that happened today john boehner using colorful language. >> use of the word ass, that word ass. >> get off his ass. >> use of the word like that inappropriate or fine? >> coming out of the ass. >> of the ass. [laughter] >> jon: he said ass. (bleep).

think john boehner would like to leave office knowing he had cobbled together some big deal where entitlements were reformed and there was a track to reduce the debt? you bet. i think he'd like that deal. he can't do it, though. i think that's why the posture of mcconnell and boehner are so important in this process because they could have shut the door and did for a long time. and the conversations he's having with democrats are new, and the fact they're up there in quasi public, that he's talking to them about look, if we're going to do entitlements, let's do it on our watch when we can do it our way. that is a new part of this conversation. >> this legacy point is important because it connects the two points we were making, which is republicans are so suspicious and they think the president is being this charm offensive so he can at the last moment pull the rug out. gwen: a charlie brown moment. >> right. it's now the 2014 elections. everybody turn out the republicans. that's what worries the republicans. but the greater concern for the president is in bigger deal. they believe
speaker john boehner to ae merge from the white house after meeting with the president on the budget issues. so welcome to news central here. jeff cox, despite those stronger than expected retail sales, you still feel that the economic emperor has no clothes. why. >> well, a couple of reasons, bill, one of them being, to add to what larry said before, where's dr. copper in all of this? we always look to copper to confirm these kind of rallies and economic growth. copper prices are sliding down about 10% just over the last month, over 5% over the last month. so that's got me concerned. i will always tell you, yes, on the surface, retail sales numbers look very good this morning and the market is not rallying. i will tell you that the day that this bull market rally ends is when it can no longer go up on good news, because that's how it always works. >> you know, rick santelli, can you address the issue of lack of rotation on a large scale out of bonds and into equities, especially when we see historic highs not only in the dow jones industrial average, but in the broader-based markets
that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the great crisis we need to fear. those that have said have been wrong, two years ago was supposed to be then. at least they're backing off it being so soon. that's eroding the underlying nature of the argument. >> does this help explain why they're doing nothing, the debt isn't a big deal? >> they a sequester, what more do they need. >> ezra klein gets the last word. >>> "the ed show" is next. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched aga
and the looming debt crisis. here is john boehner and paul ryan just this weekend. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> america is still a step ahead of european and japan. partly because of our resilient economy and our world currency status. >> michael: there you have it. but it turns out americans saw right through it. a poll out today from the hill shows while americans might be sympathetic to republican's ideas about lowering taxes they still trust the president to handle the economy. 65% said u.s. budget deficit should be reduced by cutting spending. but 35% said they trust the democrats more. so to regain the public's trust they have done an autopsy of the 2012 campaign. the rorpt has a lot of style but not a lot of serious substance. in it the word messaging appears 77 times technology in there 42 times, and then there is the long list of things that got no mention at also. health care inequality and others. the plan also pointed to some other issues, and no bashing poor people at all. the plan says low-income americans are hardworking people who
members of his party including house speaker john boehner who is ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think, by the way, there is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional rveevenues. that means closing loopholes and arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january the 1st. the talk about raising revenue is over. it's time to deal with the spending problem. >> of course, the speaker is going to say that, but speaker has to say, as he is the leader of the republican house. this weekend confirmed what i said last week. a lot of people are saying no deal is in the works. they are moving closer together. the key point out of the john boehner interview was he was asked whether he could trust the president and his
next hour. the speaker john boehner, his exclusive interview with our own jake tapper is coming up a little bit later. but dana will be back in a moment. she was running, literally running with michelle bachmann the congresswoman bobbing and weaving pulling fast moves to duck some tough questions from dana. dana's pursuit of the congresswoman when we come back. >> the president went missing. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cost and tax efficient. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal. nlove. as americans, we believed we can'tin freedom.person we that's what i fought for as a marine, and that's what we believe in as republicans. freedom means freedom for everyone. i didn't use to understand the importance of same-sex marriage, but
from the united states, house speaker nancy pelosi and susana martinez. and john boehner is sending a committee of house member, led by congressman chris smith. they will ?rie commercial because they have banned military air transportation in light of the sequester. you may or may not be ready for. it but the 2016 primary season -- it's happening. last night, conservatives chose their pick for president in the c-pac straw poll. the winner was kentucky senator rand paul, followed closely by marco rubio. former senator rick santorum was a distant third. new jersey governor chris christie, who wasn't invited, was next and former vice-presidential candidate paul ryan followed at 6%. as you saw, the two at the top of the poll were tea party favorites. the other highlight had a rocky road just to get to washington. starting with a rough-and-tumble primary battle in texas. i sat down with ted cruz and asked if he was surprised he is taking heat from the left and from within his own party. >> my focus is on addressing the challenges in our country. i think most americans are not really worr
, boehner has become speaker behind. i hear you chuckling there. is john boehner leading from behind now? what are the hard choices he's willing to make that you've heard? >> this is what we've been saying all along. we want the president to do what he said he would do during his campaign. he's already gotten his tax increase. $600 billion. he said he would give us two cuts for every $1 that he got in new revenue. we're ready to have him come to the table with what he promised during the campaign. >> congresswoman, when we look at the dueling budget plans, the democratic plan evenly balanced between revenues and the spending cuts that you talk about. the republican plan is all spending cuts. there is no revenue in there. when we couple that with the new "washington post" abc news poll saying it shows approval, everyone's approval ratings are down but republicans in congress have a whopping 72% disapproval. doesn't the president have more political capital when it comes to fighting for what he wants do and the fact that he ran on revenues back in november? >> well, i haven't seen the poll
the budget -- >> hold on. come on. let's go back and forth. the republican party right now has john boehner up there and rand paul and paul ryan trying to cut government to the bone and then to their right they have people like you who have a lot of energy but have the wrong ideas. the problem is, we never heard in this presentation what was going to happen to those people who lost their jobs. the people that fill the district that you're running for. you have a campaign left. you have to out there and speak directly to them. those people can not disappeared. it remind me of the republicans' problems of gay americans who want the same rights. if you're not in your family, they don't get those rights. if you don't see these jobs, you don't care about those jobs. your party is talking about white house tours and federal spending. we're not seeing the real spending. the problem is, what we see at cpac and the conservative media. out in the country, people are getting gust rated with that. you have to find a way, my advice to you, find a way to talk to those people, not disappear them from the
of whether the gop can learn lessons, whether 2012 sort of registered. john boehner was on record in "the new york times" saying there were no policy lessons from 2012, there were candidates that sort of failed. i guess that theory of evolution was echoed by paul ryan today. i want to play sound regarding once again the fiscal ideas that he touted in 2012, rearing their heads in 2013. let's take a listen. >> a balanced budget is a reasonable goal because it returns government to its proper limits and focus. when government overreaches, it doesn't just hurt our paychecks, it hurts our quality of life. we need to make room for community, for that vast middle ground between the government and the individual. >> you know, governor, the part of me that sticks out there is use of the word "community." i think that's been a priority that's lost specifically in the ryan budget insofar as it sort of tears asunder the social fabric. what do you think about him couching this in softer terms. >> i hate to say it, he has become an empty suit. this budget is a joke. for example, he says he would get rid of
. ill h'll be honest, i was surprised when john boehner said he trusted obama. he has been duplicitous and trying to get boehner fired. why would he say he trusts him? >> there are a lot of things we believe in and shouldn't give up on and some of the things i was talking about, i think, attracts people from both the left and right and that's supporting your right to trial by jury, your right to be innocent until proven guilty, these are such time-honored concepts that i think it allows the republican party to get bigger, but our young people want us to stand for something, really stand on principle and i think that's why the filibuster probably helped me to gain enough votes to win in the poll. >> sean: do you identify yourself as more a libertarian conservative? people ask me, i'm a registered conservative in new york, i consider myself a reagan conservative. how do you -- is libertarian fair or-- do you embrace it, what? >> it depends what people mean by it. i use the term constitutional conservative, but libertarian conservative. one reason why i think that conservative has to be m
to portray me as. we don't have a debt problem right now. he said this guy against him john boehner, but i just want to play something kind of indecreed thabl happened over the weekend. here is the president and here is john boehner. >> we don't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt. >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis. >> he just seed the moral high ground there? >> that is fairly amazing. by the way, democrats will be running that for a while now. i think it goes to the point where most americans are actually focused on jobs and economy, erin. they're not focused on the debt. i think you have that captive sort of republican grass root that is focused on the debt and trimming back federal government. and they've captured the s of republican party. but the vast majority of americans are more focused on the economy and creating jobs and building stable middle class than they are on cutting the deficit. yeah, the deficit is an issue. it's not the number one issue. >> why, boehner do that? we don't have an immediate debt crisis. you would see that in the market, right? so baner er
